A TEAM of Law Primary School pupils will compete in the district final of the annual Rotary Primary Schools Quiz, after beating off stiff competition from other teams.

The team of four competed against youngsters from Dunbar, Longniddry and Penicuik in the area finals, taking part in a closely fought contest which saw the Law Primary pupils coming out on top.

Previously, Law Primary narrowly won their local heat, after a tie breaker round against Gullane Primary, and which also featured teams from Aberlady, Dirleton and Athelstaneford.

The winning team – Martha, Cian, Wilkie and Ewan – will now go forward to compete for the trophy in the Scottish District Final, which take places at the University of Stirling on June 22.

North Berwick Rotary Club members also recently enjoyed a presentation from Malawi Fruits, and donated £1,500 to help empower Malawians to increase their household incomes through modern farming technology, training, support and access to markets.

Kevin Simpson, CEO and co-founder of Malawi Fruits, spoke to the Rotarians at Glen Golf Club, telling them of the struggles Malawians face in agriculture.

It is estimated that 70 per cent of adults are small-scale farmers barely scratching a living from unforgiving lands. Malawi Fruits has been deploying solar irrigation pumps, and over 600 are now in use.
